Can active domain be transfered to another registrar?
As I got domain renewal notice from GoDaddy, few questions came to my mind, which might be interesting for other WA members.
1. I notice that renewal ($ 17.99) is almost a double the price I paid for initial purchase of this domain ($ 9.99). Which is OK, because there is always special for purchasing new domain.
Question 1: Is renewal price fixed, or it can be changed by registrar in any dementions? If renewal price is changeable, what are the criteria for those changes?
2. I know that NameCheep offers WhoIsGuard for free, as opposed to GoDaddy. So, for multiple domain purchase it make sense to go with NameCheep. I have started with GoDaddy, so
Question 2: Is it possible to switch a registrar (not a hosting company) for a live domain name? If yes, is it worth doing it, and how painful it is?
